As I have previously shared, Trail Designs cannot make a Sidewinder for the BOT 700 due to the design of the pot, so this is great news that there is now a Caldera Cone for it!
Wanted to talk Klymit pillows for a couple of minutes, with a primary focus on the newly introduced “Pillow Ultra Light” – a collaborative pillow with Massdrop and Klymit.
At the moment Klymit has three pillows on the market:
- Pillow X
- Cush Seat
- Pillow Ultra Light
I have used all three of these and as one would expect, they each have their highlights.
Last month I published an article entitled ‘Massdrop x Klymit ‘Static V Ultra Light‘ in which I took at look at the collaboration work between Massdrop and Klymit with the introduction of their new 20d fabric sleeping pad.
Towards the end of the article I made this statement:
I know some of you are going to be wondering about modifying the Massdrop x Klymit ‘Static V Ultra Light’. As some of us have – myself included – with other Klymit (and even TaR) sleeping pads, the Massdrop x Klymit ‘Static V Ultra Light’ is manufactured like all of the other Klymit sleeping pads, that is, with a heat pressure machine. This means that you will easily be able to cut down the Massdrop x Klymit ‘Static V Ultra Light’ from the standard 72″ length to something in the shorter range
I was asked if I would be willing to make a video showing how this is done.
It took me a bit of work, as the video shoot unfortunately turned into about 3.5 hours of total video, as I talked my way through every little step as I was recording. The total shoot time spanned three days of modifying the pad (and thus shooting video) with a one day delay due to my archaic iron not working and having to purchase a new one.
For the sake of everybody, I got the main video shortened down to about 40 minutes.
I realize that is still a very long video and I will not feel bad if anybody skips ahead to the good part, towards the end, but hopefully there will be something in the first 30 or so minutes that will interest some folks.
